India have beaten Australia by six wickets in the third cricket Test in Mohali to complete a series victory over the tourists.

In a tight finish on the final day, skipper Mahendra Dhoni smashed three consecutive fours to earn victory with 15 balls remaining.

India, who now lead the four-match series 3-nil, had been set 133 to win after bowling out Australia for 223 in their second innings.

India's victory had been built upon a fantastic innings by man-of-the-match Shikhar Dhawan, who scored the fastest century on debut in Test cricket as India compiled 499 all out in their first innings in reply to Australia's 408 all out.
